Not all of them are keepers, but thankfully there are cheap and free photography apps that can help us all capture our summer memories like pros.

Adored by investor Mark Cuban, the app helps you capture perfect panoramic photos using an amazing hands-free technology that harnesses your phone's vibrations to make it rotate while propped on any hard surface. The app also helps you enhance photos with filters, frames and stickers.
